Family Friendly Employer Awards 2018

Family Friendly Employer Awards announced

The 2018 Family Friendly Employer Awards ceremony and celebration lunch took place in Galgorm Resort & Spa on Wednesday 24 October.  The gala event, which was attended by over 150 professionals from organisations from across the UK saw six companies crowned ‘Family Friendly Employer of the Year’ for their sector, along with an overall winner – Belfast International Airport.

The keynote speaker was the inspirational Nikki Bradley, adapted adventurer and motivational speaker, who, despite being diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and receiving a hip replacement at the age of twenty six, has just recently become the first person to scale four of Ireland’s highest mountains – on crutches!

Guests also heard from Employers For Childcare Chief Executive Marie Marin, who highlighted why the Awards are an important recognition of those organisations who go ‘above and beyond’ to look after their employees. Finally one of the judging panel, Jeanette Harrison, Senior Lecturer at Ulster University, gave some helpful hints and tips on completing a winning application!
